Learn Okinawan Karate Online
Karate is a martial art distinct to the culture of Okinawa, a subtropical island to the south of Japan. Training in karate improves health and vitality through techniques suited to self-defence, including punches, strikes, kicks and throws.
Traditionally these methods are presented through the practise of kata, a series of linked sequential movements in a choreographed form. Different karate styles preserve different kata which codify the fundamental movement dynamics and strategies of their school.
Through this website I introduce three core practises of the Shuri-ti tradition; the oldest on Okinawa. Individually they will enrich your existing martial arts journey or can be studied collectively to form a comprehensive online course in Okinawan Karate with beginners in mind.
